Studio J offers salon and spa services for every corner of the corpus. Pamper exhausted extremities with a 60-minute ultimate hand therapy treatment ($40), a relaxing manicure in which a passionate team of experienced professionals dips your hands in hot oil and paraffin wax before swaddling them in warm mittens and lulling them to sleep with a soothing massage and a nail trim and polish. Studio J's hair services, meanwhile, can either cage fly-away follicles with a cut and style ($42–$48 for women)—which includes a complimentary makeup touch-up—or banish unwanted body hair to the Phantom Zone with a bikini wax ($45) or a brow wax ($15). Your Groupon's value can also be used to Technicolor your tresses with a full coloring ($75–$90) or a design perm ($75–$110, includes haircut).
The sun seems to shine even within Tuscan Salon’s walls, which stay true to their name with earthy tones and a painted Roman column enshrouded by leafy branches. The decor is hardly the only element that recalls a relaxing Italian retreat, however. While the full-service salon’s aestheticians and therapists pamper clients with facials and massages, stylists snip away at hair and the hemlines of overlong togas. On the other side of the expansive salon, spa technicians gently swipe away unwanted fuzz with body sugaring, the ancient practice of removing hair with an all-natural sugar paste.
The hand-painted murals at Tuscan Salon may catch clients' eyes on the way in, but it's the trendy ‘dos created by stylist Chantha Touch that keep them gazing into the mirrors on the way out. To achieve these styles, Chantha—who boasts two decades of styling experience—uses nourishing conditioners to ward off frizz and carefully trims long locks to eliminate split ends. She also wields an arsenal of finishing tools, such as blow-driers, straighteners, and bluebirds on loan from Cinderella to sculpt manes into sleek final styles.
Miniature overhead spotlights illuminate the salon’s centerpiece—an ornate mural with Romanesque columns and lush painted greenery. Amid these cozy accents, skilled stylists administer face-flattering cuts and jazzy color highlights. Clients may also solicit the salon for a long-lasting mani-pedi or retreat to a private room for a soothing hot-stone or deep-tissue massage.
Expert stylist Jennifer Baker works within Tuscan Salon, which stays true to its name with earth-toned walls and a painted Roman column enshrouded by leafy branches. Amid this decor, Ms. Baker snips strands, strengthens hair with deep-conditioning treatments, and adds highlights.
